Thanks to my birthday landing on Easter Sunday, I got to take some long overdue time off with a long weekend away so we headed for an amazing cottage just outside Newport in Powys and with Dogzilla and the calmer dog in tow to worry some sheep, we walked, read books and watched films, ate well, drank well, mostly avoided the traffic and rain and returned home in a relaxed state of mind. I can highly recommend it. This is the evidence.
I’m currently wading through my photo library trying to work out which photographs to put up on my portfolio site, when it gets a relaunch and new design in 2 weeks, and along the way I found these photographs taken for Plastic Rhino Magazine about 7 years ago. The model in these shots is Jacqueline Passmore, make up was by Jeannie Bolet and the styling was by Regina Peldszus who also made up the ‘sweet’ pictures!
Quick photo from this year’s Africa Oyé in Liverpool’s Sefton Park. More will be online shortly at www.mcnulty.co.uk
A quick pic from a recent shoot for milliner Hayley Marsden and the first of a series of randomly chosen images from both recent shoots and the archive.
If anybody has any free time today and is in Liverpool then you really should catch the last day of the DaDaFest2010 which is a festival of deaf and disabled arts which I’ve been covering for the last two weeks. Most of the work I’ve been shooting has been performance based and I’ve blogged a lot of it on my normal site but I’d yet to finish photographing the exhibitions, which I did yesterday, and some of the work is amazing. Everybody’s a photographer these days and everybody has websites to say they’re a photographer and they’re in photography clubs and look after each other, they shoot gigs and they shoot samba dancers, they talk too much about their work and themselves as photographers and don’t just get on with it and whilst I do see some great work coming out of Liverpool and there’s some great photographers in the city, I get a little bit bored with some of the repetition of the same old subjects and ideas but seeing the DaDaFest exhibitions was a breath of fresh air and it’s well worth checking out. Whilst there’s some great paintings and other work at The Bluecoat, on the Big Screen and in St.George’s Hall, photographically speaking, if you’ve got any time today spare then you really should get up to Liverpool Cathedral (yes, that’s the Anglican) and go see the show of photographs by people who are visually impaired which is proper amazing (you get to feel the photos in relief to give you an idea of how it was like to take the photos) and if you’ve got any more time then maybe try the cells corridor show in St.George’s. Brilliant stuff!
Another red and cyan effort and this time it’s of a painting of Julie Christie based on a Bailey photo that I’ve had on my wall for years and it was painted by an old friend called Talya who was in the Liverpool band Ricky Spontane!
